    1: Purpose of the rules and guidelines


    These rules and guidelines exist so that we can keep this forum a useful, constructive, professional place for discussion of Urban Assault and related topics. Please read these rules before posting on these forums and follow them so that this forum may remain a productive and supportive community for Urban Assault. In short, the regulations exist so that the staff can keep this forum a healthy community and useful source of information that is enjoyable by all.




    2: General Forum Rules


    The rules are strictly enforced law materials which may incur direct and immediate penalties to anyone who breaches them. Failure to adhere to the following policy will result in a strict punishment regardless of circumstances.



    2.1: Illegal Material


    Urban Assault and Metropolis Dawn are no longer available for purchase, and as a result they are provided on the downloads section of this site. However, do not ask for other games or other illegal software or files. Any unauthorised links to the above materials will be removed and may be subject to suspension or ban.



    2.2: Inappropriate Posting (spamming, trolling, flaming, etc.)


    These are some kinds of inappropriate content that do not belong on these forums. "Spamming" consists of posting unsolicited or unwanted messages, often repeatedly and containing advertisements for unrelated products. "Trolling" consists of posting provocative messages, usually with the intent to invite an angry response or stir up controversy. "Flaming" is a hostile or insulting action directed at another member, or multiple members. These actions will not be tolerated on this forum in any way, including your avatar, username, post content, and signatures. What exactly constitutes inappropriate content is up to the discretion of the staff.



    2.3 No NSFW Content


    Pornography of any kind is not tolerated on this forum. Posting pornographic images or links to such sites are grounds for an immediate and permanent ban without any question.



    2.4: No Stalking or Harassment


    Posting a message to someone or private messaging someone repeatedly when that person doesn't want you to is stalking and harassment. Respect others' privacy by not stalking or harassing others.



    2.5: Credit theft and stealing

    Credit or copyright theft in any form is not allowed in this community. Do not steal the work of the others or claim the credit of the content that is not yours, and avoid making statements which may evoke such impressions. We maintain a good track of contents and contributions that are available in our community. Breaching this rule is a major offence and will result in an immediate and permanent ban.





    3. General Forum Guidelines


    The guidelines are recommended course of actions and behaviours that are expected from the community members. Breaching them may not result in a direct penalty. But they are still highly encouraged to be followed by everyone.



    3.1: Respect


    Treat one another with professionalism and respect. Interact with one another in a civilised manner. Criticisms are welcome as long as they are constructive and tactful. Maintain this respect even when you disagree with other users.



    3.2: Keep your posts understandable


    This is a forum, not an instant messenger program or a chatroom. Because of this, there is a basic standard of intelligibility that we expect of posts. Please make your best attempts to use proper grammar and spelling, including capitalisation and punctuation. If English or German is not your best language, we will be understanding, but we ask that you please make an effort to make your posts as presentable as possible.



    3.3: No useless posts


    Posts on the forum should add content to the topic, instead of a one-word post, a post that only contains emoticons, or a superficial message such as "I agree!" Posts like this clutter the forum (for these, please use reactions instead), devalue the "Show new posts" function by filling its output with useless posts, and generally have little purpose rather than raising a user's post count. As such, they should be avoided.



    3.4: No continuous posting


    Do not repeatedly post many messages in any topic. If you need to add information to a topic, and you are the last person to post, edit your post instead of making another post. If at least 12 hours have elapsed since your last post in the topic and you feel you need to bump it, you may post a second post in succession. One can avoid exceeding multiple posts in a row by copying the content of their last post, deleting that post, and then reposting again, pasting the contents of the previous post and adding on any new information. This procedure bumps the topic, keeps the old information intact, and adds any new information the user may have had, without resulting in a long stream of posts from the same user.



    3.5: On Cursing


    We understand the fact that sometimes it is necessary to express anger or frustration, but we request that you use your common sense. Do not use cursing for the purposes of insulting others. Most sentences that contain a curse word are likely excessive and unnecessary in most of time. Please do not abuse curse words to the point where it becomes necessary to impose additional censors.



    3.6: Leave Trouble to the Staff!


    As a rule of thumb, if you have any concerns or problems while using the website then please contact the staff members here. If necessary, use the report button or use Private Messages to contact the staff to take care of the issue.




    4: Forum groups


    4.1: Administrator


    Administrators manage the forums with the administration panel. They make the rules and are the main authority on the forums. They can appoint moderators and can give out the most serious punishments, including banning.



    4.2: Moderator


    Moderators are appointed to monitor discussions and ensure that they remain productive and constructive and within the rules laid out above. They maintain the forums, and can move, sticky, and lock/unlock threads.



    4.3: Staff


    These are exemplary members whose contributions to the community are particularly noteworthy. More information is available in the Staff Area.



    4.4: Do not ask!


    Promotions to staff are based on necessity. If we have no openings and do not need a new staff member, there will be no promotions. Promotions to both Staff and managerial roles are based on overall merit. Your contribution to these forums and the Urban Assault community as a whole will be considered, and if we find you worthy of the position, we will notify you. Don't call us, we'll call you. In short, do not directly ask to become Staff/managerial roles.
